In this fun and intellectually stimulating book, readers can recreate a number of London's most renowned Brutalist buildings.
Opening with an informative history of the origins and philosophy of Brutalist architecture, the book then focuses on 9 buildings, including the Barbican Estate, Robin Hood Gardens, Balfron Tower and the National Theatre.
The first part of the book looks at the significance of each of these buildings, with a short chapter on each, complete with texts and images.
The second part of the book consists of a series of 9 pre-cut and folded buildings, printed on heavy card stock, that readers can detach and construct with easy-to-follow instructions.
At once fun and informative, this unique book offers a challenging and entertaining approach to architecture.
